litronic lights QUESTION

Hi,

Is the function of my litronic light correct (see video), when I start up car weird noises at bottom position of light when adjusting (going down).
It seems like they are blocked and they can not get to bottom position or something, and then they come up.

Or is it normal?,.... car is new to me so I have no idea if they should go more down or not

Something is wrong, they should silently pivot down and then back up when first turned on.

Look closely at the reflector bowl in your headlights and compare the gap along the bottom edge to each other. I bought a used set of litronics that the pivot point of the bowl had become unsnapped from it's mount such that the auto leveling motor was unable to properly adjust.

Thank you to all.

@911monty
Ok I will pull out both lights and compare the gaps. I am afraiding there is something broken inside. Is it able to disasemble litronic reflector, (projector unit) and buy any spare parts or complete new unit?

If the reflector pivot has popped off it is extremely tedious to fix. It would be much easier to do by removing the lens. I did mine through the opening on the backside but it is not easy.

edit. You do not need to pull the lights to check. Just look at the gaps from the front of the car. Also if yours has the little white leveling tab on the outer side compare them.

The yellow arrow points to the gap I am referring to. Mine were making contact between the bowl and the lower surface.
